Abstract

A continuation of a previous study of the 1s–2p transition array in Ne i is reported. Phenomenological intermediate-coupling wave functions that predict relative line strengths in good agreement with those measured here, as well as predicting energy levels and g values that agree with available data, are obtained and are compared with those generated by the ab initio calculations of Cowan. Absolute transition probabilities for the (1s2–2p3) and (1s4–2p3) transitions of 0.0040±0.0002 and 0.053±0.002 ns−1, respectively, corresponding to a mean life for the 2p3 level of 17.5±0.7 ns, were measured by pulsed electron excitation of low-pressure Ne gas with cascade-repopulation effects explicitly accounted for by direct measurement.
